* Subverted by Creator/JohnCWright. After having had a religious experience which he believed was far too unlikely to have a wholly naturalistic explanation to be credible, he converted to Christianity after previously having been a rather committed atheist. Due to the nature of his conversion, he briefly considered that maybe the fundamentalists were correct after all, but decided not to reject science and logic after realizing that {{The Fundamentalist}}'S beliefs made no sense to him even as a Christian.

* As quoted above, in the ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' version of the DragonBallZ movie ''Tree of Might'', Goku is taking his IdiotHero[=/=]CloudCuckooLander schtick UpToEleven by attempting to talk to the giant tree. When Yamcha tries to interject some reason, an offscreen voice (which is actually a member of the BigBad's QuirkyMiniBossSquad) appears to answer for the tree. Yamcha gives up in disgust.

** In the season three two-part finale, "The Family that Slays Together...," there is a final epic battle between [[spoiler: an O.S.I. army, an army of Monarch henchmen, and an army of naked Hank and Dean clones led by Sgt. Hatred. Most of those involved don't see this as anything particularly unusual, but it proves to be the straw that breaks the camel's back for OnlySaneMan/Badass Bodyguard Brock Sampson. He mentions some of the weird things he's seen over his years as the Venture family bodyguard and quits on the spot.]]

* Frank Grimes from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' memorably went the more dramatic route when he gave up on reason and started imitating the mind-numbingly stupid antics of his coworker, [[TheFool Homer Simpson]]. Because Frank wasn't BornLucky like Homer, he dies within minutes.

By the end of the episode, he gives in to Farnsworth's way of thinking, and manages to figure out how one of his inventions works just in time to save everyone.
